These photos are from the wedding from a beautiful bride that decided to have her wedding in Waterford Castle and as so many brides getting married in the Castle, chooses Lamber de Bie Flowers to look after the flowers for her big day.

We looked after the flowers for the bride and brides maidsbouquet, both contained a selection of pink, purple and lilac flowers such as the Blue Curiosa rose, pink ranuncules, blue hyacinths and lilac Sweat Pea.  It’s somewhere between Spring and Summer. The Anemone and Ranunculus tell me it’s still kind of Spring and the Sweat Pea and Veronica are reaching out to the Summer.

Wedding Trends 2011

Wedding Trends – 2011 – A Vintage Year

Vintage style bridal bouquet

Spending almost every sunday in January & February at wedding fairs in different hotels in the South-East in Ireland may result in aching feet and a sore throat, but it certainly is a fantastic way of getting up to speed with current wedding trends, as Lamber de Bie (Lamber de Bie Flowers) found out.

The main season for all the wedding fairs in the South-East of Ireland is always in the first two months of the year. Lamber and his team are attending wedding fairs in both Waterford and Kilkenny almost every Sunday during this time. Some of the hotels that Lamber de Bie Flowers were attending are; The Newpark Hotel, Kilkenny, Waterford Castle Hotel, Waterford, Langtons Hotel, Kilkenny, Woodlands Hotel, Waterford, Ormonde Hotel, Kilkenny, The Step House Hotel, Borris, Co. Carlow, The Lord Bagenal, Loughlinbridge, Co. Carlow, and many more. At the many wedding shows the wedding suppliers showcase everything that is current and ‘Must Have’ for prospective brides to be. Including an incredible selection of wedding dresses. Indeed the focus of the majority of the brides was the bridal fashion shows, which provided an ideal opportunity to have a sneak preview of what’s in fashion. Big skirts are very much ‘in’ but bodices remain fitted, and in the majority of cases, strapless. There is less intricate beading and glitz about. This seems to have been replaced instead by trails and fabric embellishments.

And as for colour and styles, well vintage is without doubt the buzz word for weddings this year.

So what sums up a vintage themed wedding? Colour-wise: cream, ivory (never white) and all shades of pinks from pale to dusky with a splash of cerise. Green is also popular, particularly olive green and the soft grey/green of eucalyptus. Overall the look could be described as cottage garden, very flowery, natural and pretty.

Reception designs seem to fall into two groups, quirky or elegant. For quirky it’s ceramic jugs and pitchers, individual glass vases, bone china cups and saucers. A sort of mix and match, church hall/ marquee on the village green type of feel. On the elegant front, brides at the show loved the tall glass martini vases, filled with water and roses petals (in vintage pink of course). Storm lanterns and decorate birdcages also seemed to tick a lot of the boxes with many brides who were looking for a variety of designs for the reception, rather than repeating the same one all the way trough.

A contrast from the vintage muted shades is purple, a colour witch looks to be big over the next couple of years. A top table of trailing amaranthus and purple vanda orchids was one of the most popular items on display. – one bride even took her bridesmaids shoes out of the box so she could match them up (they went perfectly).

So to sum up the wedding look for 2011/12 – well, it’s very flowery, which is great for florists, with lots of pastel shades and natural greens accented with splashes of purple.

Amnesia wedding rose

Flower-wise, roses are going to be even bigger this year, in particular the more (and it’s that word again) vintage colours, such as Amnesia, Hypnose, and Amalia should fit the bill.

Away from roses, hydrangeas continue the cottage garden theme, along with delphiniums, gladioli and for something a little more up-market for the bridal bouquet, vanda orchids.

Who would have thought that just a couple of Sundays at the different wedding events in the south east of Ireland could provide you with such valuable insights!
